What's the used Honda FR-V MPV like?

The FR-V, like the Fiat Multipla, has six seats in two rows of three. Its high-quality cabin is stacked with all the kit you need to make the family feel safe and pampered. You're a little short on storage space, however, and the centrally mounted controls are a bit of a stretch for the driver. The stereo and heating controls are fiddly, too.

Still, the driving position is good and the dash-mounted gearlever is easy to use. Even though the middle front seat slides back, shoulder room is tight with three adults on board. However, none of them will complain about their leg- or headroom.

The FR-V is a rewarding drive and cruises quietly, apart from some wind noise. All engines are strong, willing and smooth, and the wide body helps give sure-footed handling. You won't notice most bumps, either.
